The Hundred Pound Carp Challenge ***Updated 9th August 2018***


 This page is devoted to my carp challenge which is just a digitised version of my little black book which has all the basic details of all carp captures since April 6th 2018.

 This page will also be updated upon every trip out where I successfully manage a Carp.

 If you want to look back on my carp campaign you can select the label "the hundred pound challenge" and then that should take you through to the posts only relating to my carp campaign as I seek to catch a "40lb" stillwater, "30lb" canal and a "30lb" river specimen.

 As I write this on July 5th I haven't yet achieved either of the three specimens but have come close, the details are below, links will also be included for each date if a post has been written for that specific session.
